Aerated oil can lead to a myriad of symptoms, including oxidation, thermal and oil degradation and compressibility of the oil. Powertrain design and operating conditions can dramatically increase aeration rates.
Aerify™ Measure provides a continuous, real-time measurement of oil aeration rates in engine or drivetrain dynamometers, in-vehicle or test bench applications.
Downsized oil reservoirs result in lower oil residence times, increased agitation and more frequent pressurization cycles, all of which may result in an increased aeration rate. Performance and longevity of a component may significantly decrease with the presence of air, making controlled aeration tests necessary.
ATA Aerify™ Control can accurately introduce and control the aeration rate within a lubrication circuit. Aeration rates can follow an engine or transmission profile.
